Brief Answer:
Likely a fungal infection

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for contacting healthcare magic.

White patches which have only recently appeared might indicate a fungal infection and fucidin does not work on it.

Please answer the following questions
1) Are you a diabetic or have you had recent blood test to rule out diabetes
2) Have you had unprotected sex recently
3) Are you on any medications
4) Have you got any other medical problems
5) Is your foreskin retractable
6) Please post a picture of the white patches to enable me discuss further

Awiting your response.
